COVID-19 New Bike Fitting

We have started conducting New Bike Cyclefit sessions in-store for customers who are purchasing a bike from Cyclefit.

Everyone's safety has to be a priority - each session is choreographed and structured to achieve the best bike fit result with the minimum risk. We have reduced the length of the session to one hour.

In-Store Cyclefit (60 minutes)

  • Socially distanced Functional Movement Screen (FMS) - standing evaluation, inseam measurement, single-leg squats and hamstring flexibility.
  • Pedalling on our infinitely adjustable Fit Bike - key data points recorded and XY co-ordinates to determine frame size and bike set-up.
  • Dartfish Motion Analysis
  • gebioMized Saddle Pressure Mapping
  • Post fit discussion and recommendation of bike models, frame sizing/geometry/custom-design

What's involved?

  • Interview - conducted online - pre-appointment

    We aim to understand as much as possible about you, your life and your cycling. Knowing your future aspirations and current cycling limitations will help us determine your bike position based on your fitness, aspirations and the type of cycling you do. We will spend time exploring any past or current injury or discomfort history both on and off the bike. This helps us to understand what we may find during the physical evaluation or during the on-bike analysis.

  • Physical evaluation

    Weight, inseam length, foot size, hamstring/sacrum range, single leg squats.

  • Four-camera Dartfish Motion Analysis

    Dartfish's sophisticated software records a rider's every movement and can measure leg extension and track key points of movement. Your position and movement is recorded throughout the session to illustrate changes. A very important aspect for the customer is the ability to view their posture and pedalling technique.

  • Fully adjustable Fit Bike for dynamic fitting

    The Fit Bike allows us to adjust a rider's position without compromising to a frame's limitations; millimetre accurate adjustments can be made while the rider is pedalling. No on-and-off and stop start. Smooth, fast, accurate, repeatable and recordable adjustments. Handlebar and saddle can be changed to achieve the best set-up. The crank length can also be adjusted easily during the session.

  • Computrainer Pedal stroke analysis

    Wired into the Fit Bike is RacerMate's Computrainer. The Computrainer provides the variable resistance and most importantly the Spinscan. The Spinscan shows you and your fitter when and where the power is applied during the pedal stroke and any pedalling asymmetries that may be present.

  • Cleat set-up

    The pedal cleats will be set in the correct position and adjustments made to ensure optimum performance. Bontrager stock footbeds can be recommended to support the foot in the shoe.

  • GebioMized saddle pressure mapping

    Pressure Mapping provides objective feedback, enabling us to make small, precise adjustments and interventions to optimise your connection with the bike and making it an all-round more enjoyable ride.

  • Full Report and Recommendations

    After your Cyclefit you will receive a full report containing the recommended set-up for your bicycle and recommendations for a new bicycle.

  • "Cyclefit offers an in-depth and highly personalised approach to bike sales. Whatever your riding discipline (for me it’s road, gravel and MTB) the team in Covent Garden will find the right build for you. All this is built around a pro level bike fit and detailed component selection. Add to this the important items often overlooked beyond the bike itself such as shoes, insoles and saddle pressure mapping and it’s a full service operation."
